Third Parties

You may voluntarily provide your badge directly to event sponsors or other third parties at the event, which will provide them with your registration details (including your contact information). This privacy notice does not cover how your data will be used by those sponsors or third parties, and you should consult the privacy notices of those organisations.

We only allow our service providers to handle your personal data if we are satisfied they take appropriate measures to protect your personal data. We also impose contractual obligations on service providers to ensure they can only use your personal data to provide services to us and to you.

As your personal data will be stored on our IT infrastructure it will also be shared with our data processors who provide email, document management, and storage services (including cloud hosting).
